DT:NYC:: EARL SWEATSHIRT COVERS FADER – REASONS WHY WE LOVE HIM

More reasons we love Earl:

He is a lyrical genius.
He has an ability to not take the world too seriously and at the same time confront the heavier parts of his life with honesty and creativity.
His artist name is Earl Sweatshirt.
He masqueraded as an anonymous cult starting rapper giving us only an illustration of a Rick-Ross-looking bearded man and the name Captain Murphy.
He was wise enough to wait to release a project like Doris, despite mounting hype, until he knew exactly what he wanted to say.

He is finally about to release Doris.

He’s performing live at DT: NYC!
